Championship, R20 (7-8 Dec, 2018)
After 7 years in the Premier League, you would think Swansea would be well-placed to bounce straight back after relegation. But currently they sit in the bottom half of the table (13th) and have only won 7 of their first 20 games. The Swans travel to Brentford this weekend, who are perhaps similarly under-performing compared to pre-season expectations. The Model suggests Swansea could slip even further down the table, with a 1-0 (15%) defeat on the cards.
Our local club, Reading F.C., sit perched above the drop zone as we head towards the mid-point of the season. They welcome Sheffield Utd to the Madejski tomorrow evening, who themselves are on a dip in form. The Model forecasts an even game, and 1-1 (12%) is the most likely outcome.
The rest of our Championship forecasts are in the the table below:
